South-facing windows are a fixture of passive design, favoured for their solar heat absorption and significantly lower energy bills. Prospective buyers who choose from the new release of 36 south-facing suites at Lakeside Residences will also enjoy sweeping views of beautiful Lake Ontario and nearby parks. When complete, the master-planned community by Greenland Group Canada will include nearly 2,000 condominiums and 30,000 square feet of retail space.

This limited stack of three units starts on the second floor of Lakeside Residences and extends to the 13th, featuring floorplans that range from one-bedroom to two-bedroom-plus-den. The new release appeals to all types of buyers, from investors, to first-timers, to downsizers. The smallest suites measure around 500 square feet, while the more spacious residences hover around 1,000 square feet. One suite in particular that stands out for its uniqueness is the one-bedroom-plus-den with two full bathrooms — providing additional space for a home office and a convenient secondary bathroom for guests.

Suites will be characterized by nine-foot smooth ceilings, prefinished laminate flooring, floor-to-ceiling windows and generous outdoor spaces.

The collection of south-facing suites will have prime access to the public amenities in the surrounding area, including Sherbourne Common, the Water’s Edge Promenade and Sugar Beach. Even closer to home, residents can experience Lakeside Residences’ exceptional onsite amenities. Host a large get-together in the stylish party room, or challenge your neighbour to a game of pool in the games area.

The state-of-the-art fitness centre boasts a sauna and steam rooms, and there’s a whimsical children’s play area for families with little ones. During the warmer months, residents can unwind on the rooftop terrace, complete with a swimming pool, cabanas and comfortable lounge chairs. In addition, an exterior courtyard located at the base of the tower will serve as a dynamic public space for all to enjoy.

Lakeside Residences is located at 215 Lake Shore Boulevard East in the emerging East Bayfront neighbourhood. Steps away is the future site of Quayside, a ‘smart city’ being developed by Sidewalk Labs (a subsidiary of Alphabet, which is owned by Google) and Waterfront Toronto. Spread across 12-acres, Quayside will include urban parks, pedestrian-friendly streetscapes, and more than three million square feet of residential, office and commercial space. It will also be home to Google’s new Canadian headquarters.

Toronto’s eastern waterfront is on the verge of a major transformation. The former industrial site will soon see the addition of new urban parks, public spaces, and state-of-the-art commercial and residential developments. The area’s potential is what attracted developers like Greenland Group Canada, who announced plans for its Lakeside Residences project last year. The much-anticipated 3.5-acre master-planned community is situated on the former FedEx lands at 215 Lake Shore Boulevard East and will consist of eight towers, nearly 2,000 condominiums and 30,000 square feet of retail space.

Steps away is the future site of Quayside, a ‘smart city’ being developed by Sidewalk Labs (a subsidiary of Alphabet, which is owned by Google) and Waterfront Toronto. Spread across 12-acres, Quayside is a mixed-use community that will include urban parks, pedestrian-friendly streetscapes, and more than three million square feet of residential, office and commercial space. Combining urban design with digital technology, Quayside is poised to attract thousands of new residents and employers, including Google’s new Canadian headquarters.

The ambitious project celebrated a major milestone last summer when a Plan Development Agreement (PDA) was signed between Waterfront Toronto and Sidewalk Labs. The PDA defines and governs the planning and funding relationship between the two organizations and outlines budgetary and joint oversight measures.

“We are excited to take this next step with Sidewalk Labs to set the stage for delivering a truly transformational project on the waterfront that addresses many critical urban issues faced by our City and other cities,” said Helen Burstyn, Chair of Waterfront Toronto’s Board of Directors, in a press release.

More recently, the winning designs for two new neighbourhood parks were announced by Waterfront Toronto in partnership with the City of Toronto’s Parks, Forest and Recreation Division. The designs include Love Park by Claude Cormier et Associés along York Street and Rees Ridge by wHY Architecture and Brook Mcllroy for the Rees Street Park.

Designed by the award winning Hariri Pontarini Architects, the sail-shaped profile of the two main towers takes visual cues from the city’s lively waterfront, while the glass facade reflects the calming waters of Lake Ontario. Fritted glass balconies taper and flare, illuminating the tower’s edge giving them a strong presence and visual interest from all angles.

At the base of the towers is an exterior courtyard designed as an urban backyard with an emphasis on walkability, leisure, parklands and easy access to cafes and retail amenities.

Serving as the presentation centre’s focal point, a scale model of the development’s initial phases builds upon the renderings being used to market the project, offering visitors a chance to soak in more details of the building’s architecture. Lakeside’s design draws inspiration from the sailboats commonly seen in the harbour a short distance to the south, evident in the complementary convex and concave facades seen on the first phase’s taller towers.
